Thies, Senegal

with one comment

It is Tuesday Dec 23 and I am back in Thies after a few days of R&R in Dakar seeing off the rest of the Operation Smile Mission team members. Yesterday Beth and I went to visit 2 villages. On was the one Tostan was founded in called Saam Njaay and the other was a village called Keur Thione Saar where one of the girls who had been operated on lives in. It was quite a welcoming. Pictures to follow at some point. Today I have been hanging out with Tenley as she distributes micro growing tables to some families. Later she will help the families assemble the tables to be prepared for growing and seeding fruits and vegetables. I have no notes with me at the internet cafe so I can’t be more specific about any details. I am just enjoying an iced glass of ginger juice.
